Club Brugge vs Genk – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Club Brugge are favourites to kick off their title defence on a positive note when they play Genk on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Club Brugge to Win

Champions Club Brugge are favourites to retain their crown this season and they can get their title defence off to the perfect start against Genk on Sunday. The title holders played Genk four times last term and beat them twice in the league, once in the Super Cup and knocked them out of the cup, so it’s fair to say, they have their number. The hosts have a new manager in the dugout in Carl Hoefkens and with early-season optimism in their camp peaking, we recommend backing Club Brugge to prevail.

Over 1.5 Club Brugge Team Goals

Club Brugge enjoyed plenty of success in the final third in meetings with Genk last season. The champions hit the net three times in all four of their encounters with the Blauw-Wit in all competitions and that razor-sharp frontline should enjoy another productive outing against the same defence on Sunday. Club Brugge will want to put a market down on matchday one and they could be worth backing to net over 1.5 times again.

Club Brugge vs Genk News & Injuries

Club Brugge Predicted Lineup

Club Brugge sold star forward Lois Openda to Lens in the summer, though they reinvested his fee and then some on new recruits. Bjorn Meijer, Casper Nielsen and Ferran Jutgla all look like solid signings while the free transfer capture of Cyle Larin from Besiktas could be a real coup.

Genk Predicted Lineup

Genk lost Norwegian schemer Kristian Thorstvedt to Sassuolo in the off-season, though Argentinean Nicolas Castro, who arrived fro Newell's, could fill the gap. Cyrill Dessers is back at the club following a loan spell at Feyenoord, as is Ike Ugbo, who spent a year with Troyes in France. Wouter Vrancken will take charge of Genk for the first time in a competitive fixture this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Genk: Leysen – Preciado, McKenzie, Lucumi, Juklerod – Outtara, Castro, Heynen – Ito, Onuachu, Dessers
